Eligibility Requirements for a Departmental Job

Graduate or undergraduate students who are enrolled in six or more credit hours per fall/spring semester, are eligible for departmental jobs. Enrollment during the summer semester is not required to work in the Departmental Job Program during the summer as long as the student was enrolled in at least six credit hours during the preceding spring semester or is pre-enrolled in at least six credit hours for the following fall semester. Please note that students who are working during the summer but not enrolled in classes are subject to FICA withholdings.

Paperwork & Paychecks

Once you are hired, your onboarding process will kick off in Workday. Onboarding includes completing the required forms online and presenting required identification documents to the Student Employment Office, 207A Picken Hall. You will need to present the following personal identification documents for determining employment eligibility:

  • social security card or state-issued birth certificate;
    and
  • photo ID such as driver's license or Tiger card;
    or
  • U.S. passport, when applicable.

All onboarding forms and identification documents must be completed/presented before you are allowed to clock in and begin working. Your supervisor will receive a notification when your onboarding is complete and you are authorized to begin working.

Effective June 8, 2014, the student employment wage is $8.25 per hour. Paydays are every other Friday. FHSU uses EFT (electronic fund transfer) as the payroll distribution process. Your earnings are deposited to the bank account of your choice, which you set up during onboarding. Pay advices are available for viewing online in Workday.

Request to be Added to Workstudy Waiting List

If you were not originally awarded Federal Workstudy, you may submit a request to determine your eligibility for workstudy by completing a Federal Workstudy Request Form. You must have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated financial need. Students who are eligible for workstudy will be awarded from the waiting list as funding and positions become available.
